Glasgow and the Scottish Lakes
This is a journey full of contrasts to get to know the real Scotland, allowing you to immerse yourself in Scottish folklore and admire one of the most important sculptures of the Clyde: the Kelpies, where we will make our first stop. We will continue our fairy and elf trail on a visit to Loch Katrine, then enjoy the spectacular scenery of the Trossachs National Park and Loch Lomond. We will then finish the day in the economic capital of Scotland: Glasgow. The Kelvingrove Museum, its medieval cathedral, its Victorian buildings and the redevelopment of the banks of the River Clyde in 2014 have made this city the architectural capital of the UK and we will admire it on an intensive sightseeing tour.

C Loch Katrine
Loch Katrine is said to be the most beautiful lake in Scotland and will be the next point on our tour. You will have the opportunity to take a small boat trip on the lake that will make you fall in love. For those passionate about literature, it will be exciting to discover that this place was a source of inspiration for Sir Walter Scott, the most important writer in Scotland, since Rob Roy, hero of the Jacobite wars and protagonist of one of his lives, lived on the shores of the lake. novels. Even Queen Victoria surrendered to the charms of the landscape that surrounds this magnificent lake located in the Highlands, just like “The Lady of the Lake”.

The lunch stop will be made at this point where the views of Loch Lomond will be spectacular.
At the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, it was the second most important city in the British Empire, a hugely important industrial and financial centre and the scene of the most exasperating social contrasts. The splendour and variety of its architecture has made Glasgow one of the most versatile locations in Scotland. We will travel through it on a panoramic tour that will take us to see the Tolbooth Tower, the banks of the River Clyde, the SSE Hydro, the Kelvingrove Museum, the University and the beautiful surrounding park, contrasting with the buildings of the post-industrial present.
